FILE - In this Feb. 21, 2017 file photo, Israeli soldier Elor Azaria is embraced by his mother at the start of his sentencing hearing in Tel Aviv, Israel. Israel’s chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, said in a letter published Wednesday, Sept. 27, 2017 that he was reducing the 18-month prison sentence of Azaria, a soldier convicted of fatally shooting an incapacitated Palestinian attacker last year. Eisenkot cut four months off Azaria’s jail term, which began last month, citing “benevolence and mercy considerations.” (Jim Hollander, Pool, via AP, File)
